In some way, shape or form, Nick Hill has been involved in music for the better part of the last 20 years. Nick began taking guitar seriously in or around 1999. Since that time, he has written and recorded a library of songs while continuously developing his studio production methods. Nick is a firm believer in being a student of the game and in staying true to this philosophy, he has tirelessly dedicated himself to the art of recording, mixing and mastering metal music, along with a multitude of different genres that inspire him.
He has recorded hundreds of songs over his career and in recent years, has released multiple singles under the name, The Partisan Component. A passion project with good friend and stand-out metal vocalist, Jeff Plewa.
Most recently, Nick has released his first solo, instrumental EP entitled, Ample Chattels as well as the B-Side Single, Mitosis.
No stranger to the big stage Nick has played for thousands of fans as a member of the now disbanded Metalcore band aSHADEbelow. The band opened for such metal acts as In Flames, Soilwork, Meshuggah and many others.
A testament to Nicks musical dexterity, he has developed and written several short orchestral pieces aimed at his desire to score feature films and television. Some of his biggest influences within the genre include Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, John Williams, Howard Shore, and Bernard Herrmann.
Nick has also developed a career as a DP, videographer and video editor. Initially seen as an extension of his music career, his passion for video and film as an art form has blossomed into more than a side hustle. He has filmed and edited music videos for local Milwaukee bands as well as helped to develop a video series highlighting local musicians and supporting the local music scene with the help of local, Milwaukee guitar shop, Music Go Round Greenfield.
